I LOVE BEING A GIRL
I LOVE DOING GIRLY STUFF AND DEALING WITH THINGS IN MY OWN GIRLY WAY......I LOVE THE BEAUTIFUL FEMININITY THAT OUR LORD BLESSED EVE WITH, IN HER CREATION.
I LIKE TO CELEBRATE THIS BLESSING BY HAVING GIRL TIME AND CONNECTING WITH MY DAUGHTERS AND WITH MY FRIENDS IN A SPECIAL WAY THAT ONLY GIRLS CAN.
HERE ARE SOME GIRLY EXAMPLES
Funny "Selfies" while in the car, stopped at a stoplight (pouty faces are SO FUN AND TOTALLY GIRLY in pictures)
Girly shopping trips to the mall that last ALL DAY LONG......
Where we giggle as we try on different perfumes and fun makeup inside of the stores
Going to the hair salon for a shampoo, trim, and style
Sometimes it is fun to change things up and add a few more layers in our hair because girls like to be spontaneous and fascinating!!
And sometimes.......we like to get our hair totally cut off for a refreshing and sassy new look
Because girls like to do that!! It makes life exciting!!
And no-matter what, we still look SO cute!!
Another example of being girly, is going out to our favorite restaurant.....just because we are "in the mood" for some Asian cuisine
Posing for a picture with her girlfriend, Madison and Isabella are "a little unsure" b/c they are about to walk into a haunted house but are not sure if they are really "ready" to brave this event!!
Laughing as they decide who will go in first!! VERY GIRLY INDEED!!
The moms, posing in the parking lot following the haunted house experience and SUPER FUN girl's night!!
GIRLS CHRISTMAS COOKIE BAKING DAY 2013!!
Why bake holiday goodies alone when you can bake ALL DAY with your girlfriends.....we EVEN have an annual Girls Christmas Present Wrapping Party every year too.....it makes these tasks 10 times more fun!! Oh...and we ALWAYS have Starbucks while we work....AGAIN....VERY GIRLY!!
What is even MORE girly than a girlfriend's baking day with Starbucks Skinny White Chocolate Mocha's....MATCHING APRONS!!!
AND because we are SO GIRLY.....they are embroidered with our initials!! We love to bake together while feeling SUPER CUTE in our aprons!!
We made SO MANY TREATS that we had to put some of them outside on the patio to chill while making more in the house (we were really blessed to have a unseasonably cold day, so the patio acted as our refrigerator.
Why did we bake so many Christmas goodies........Well, BEING GIRLS, we never want anyone to leave hungry.....remember visiting grandma's house? You always left with a belly full of yummy treats!! NOBODY left Grandma's house hungry!!
We even called the kids in to help put "berries" on the cornflake Christmas wreaths....Why, because GIRLS LIKE TO INCLUDE EVERYONE IN THE FUN.....and the marshmallow wreathes were cooling too fast and we needed extra little hands to get the cinnamon candies on before they cooled too much and the candy would not stick!!
You cannot get more GIRLY than this!!! Sister in laws, both blessed with little babies in our bellies We are due 5 days apart!! Can you believe it?!?!?! God never ceases to amaze!!!
They will be sweet little cousins. Jeremy and I are having a sweet baby boy (as you know) and Jason (Jeremy's brother) and Destin are having a sweet baby girl!!
CONTRARY TO WHAT THE WORLD WILL TELL OUR DAUGHTERS, WE WERE NOT DESIGNED TO BE MEN OR TO ACT LIKE MEN OR TO SHARE THE SAME ROLE IN THE WORLD AS MEN.....OUR LORD DESIGNED US GIRLS FOR A VERY SPECIAL PURPOSE ON THIS EARTH.
DON'T GET ME WRONG, MEN ARE TRULY AMAZING AND INCREDIBLE CREATURES, MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD, AND TOTALLY COMPLIMENT OUR FEMININITY PERFECTLY!! THEY ARE STRONG AND DIGNIFIED AND ABSOLUTELY A GIFT TO THE WORLD.
BUT I HAVE TO SAY THAT I LOVE BEING A GIRL......BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT JESUS CREATED ME TO BE!!
